Sample the Dog
|406 page views|
I tried to sample the dog, but got a full serving of it instead. What I did on this climb didn't even resemble climbing! (unless you count yarding on draws). The holds are very small. Well, OK, very small, uneven, sharp and sloping. Except where they are slick and sloping. Owch!
This is on the way west end of the North Face of the box, just as you come around the corner from the South face on the West end. This is the right-most bolted route on the wall.
4 bolts to a pin at a mantle, to a 2-bolt anchor. The 4th bolt does not have a spinner on it, which makes that one unique on this climb. I swear, I hung out at the first clip for 40 seconds finger-tightening that nut.
